It’s Karen here and I wanted to share how I embellished a mermaid with Dew Drops. My motivation was my niece’s up coming 4th birthday. She adores mermaids & anything related to swimming. So when I found this wooden mermaid, I knew it would be a perfect addition to help celebrate her birthday. By embellishing the mermaid’s tail with Dew Drops, I created jeweled scales which gave the project a lovely texture. The beautiful colors & sheen was created by applying the transparent Dew Drops over metallic paint which intensified the colors. Let’s dive in!
1. Apply white texture paste to the number. Create gentle waves of texture paste to mimic the ocean using a popsicle stick. Set aside to dry thoroughly.
2. Paint the texture paste with shades of aqua blue & green metallic paint. Set aside to dry.
